Camping-- Pack 419 Style


Camping takes your Cub Scout to exciting adventures into the natural world. Pack camping is family camping where the Cub Scouts learn to live with others in the outdoors.  Camping also teaches good citizenship in the outdoors.  It is good for the mind, body, and spirit.  Cub Scouts learn self reliance, conservation, spiritual growth, sportsmanship, and courage. Most importantly, camping is FUN FUN FUN.
